Today I have spent a lot of time thinking about friends.
Here on SP it is so important to "make friends"! I read a blog entry that made me want to cry. Someone feeling bad because no one seemed to care! Feeling like no one cares about you can make this journey so much harder! Just having one person tell you that you are doing a good job can change your whole day!
The support that we give and receive here is soooo important! Some days we are in a good mood and we transfer that good feeling to others here in the blogs and on Spark Pages. Getting encouraging words when you are down or discouraged, can be all it takes to keep you on track! Knowing that there are people out there that have the same problems and understand the way that you feel can give you the motivation to push forward and reach your goals!
I check for comments regularly! I try to comment on other peoples blogs to encourage them the way they encourage me!
It is said here on SP that people who participate in the "community" lose more weight and reach their goals more easily than those who don't participate. I believe it! That is what makes this site special! I wouldn't go anywhere else! This is like "HOME"! emoticon

    So glad you stopped by and checked in on that person. We can make a difference - not only in meeting our goals - but others making theirs as well. It is a great feeling.

    So glad you are my SparkFriend!
